  author={Thomas D. Sleeter and Bruce C. Coull},
Untreated wood submerged for 4–6 months and infested with the marine wood boring isopod, Limnoria tripunctata Menzies, was analyzed for the associated invertebrate community. Associated with Limnoria were acoelous turbellarians, nematodes, the archiannelid Dinophilus sp., the tubicolous polychaete, Polydora sp., 4 harpacticoid copepods, 2 amphipods and the tanaid, Leptochelia savignyi. Limnoria ecto-commensals included ciliated and diatoms. Prior to dying Limnoria dug “tomb-like” side tunnels… CONTINUE READING
